We actually both are taking some time from the lifestyle, it's weird for us to take time off, to try to work through the winter woes....workin' on our health/fitness, and making sure we get a head start on summer this time before it's here, before we even know it...

It's this time of year. Short days. Lots of darkness. It's cold. Kinda depressing and tough to stay motivated to WOD. I rely heavily on my training partners and CF community to motivate me. NCCF Lab is motivating. So is The Outlaw Way.

It's great to see others in the CrossFit community on SLS!

Was going through a mental wall on Monday. After a long weekend stuck sitting in a "hotel" room because of the weather. Literally stuck inside (unsafe to go outside). Starting thinking about taking a couple months off to the point of NOT competing in the Crossfit Open this spring.

It started because Ifound it hard to get motivated to go out at 6a when it's below freezing outside. But brought my gear to work and pushed myself to get there at 4p. So glad I did it.

Four days (and 3 workouts) laterI'm back to being motivated for the Open; sent my schedule to my coach so we can set up a schedule for me. Just have to avoid missing more than 3 days in a row at the gym in order to keep my mojo going.

Quipguy, that's big weight for your height and weight! Generally I start with 135, then 225 followed by 315 and finish with 405 for ten reps. 45lb plates works well and look's good. Lol. Legs kick my ass!

Nice! Clean eating and working out properly is how you achieve your fitness goals.

I think one might say I am a fitness junkie, and I love it. As a npc national masters champion 2012, my weigh in weight was 190 and my body fat ratio was 3.7%. Six days a week in the gym and yes, some part of my body was sore. Just the nature of the breast. There is a difference between being sore and having injured yourself. Pain and suffering is my mantra!

WhenI do a leg workout, which is typically once a week, I start out with about 50 squats withonly body weight, justto warm up the knees and hips. I then do 10 reps with 200, 10 with250, 10 with 300, 10 with 350, 10 with 390, 10 with 440, and 10 with 480. IfI'm feeling really good, I will do ten with 530. If not, I stop at 480. My best one rep squat is 600, but I don't really have an ideal squatter's physique. At 6'2 210#, I'm ratherlong and lean,instead of short and compact, which is muchmore suited to squatting heavy weights!I then do 10 repseach sideone legged leg presses on a machine, 320 right leg and 350 left leg. Then leg curl and extensions, 10 each. By the time I'm through, my leg muscles feel pretty much like jello! I do my squats raw, without knee braces or a weight belt. I don't believe in weight belts, or knee braces, because they provide artificial support for your muscles you don't have when doing real world lifts outside the weight room. Ialwaysuse a squat rack for safety, justin caseIget in the down postion and can't get backup, since alwaysI work out alone without aspotter. I only rest long enough between sets to change the weights on the bar. I increase 50 lbsa set (a 25# weightper side)until I run out of 25# weights, and then I increase 40 lbs per side by taking a 25# off and adding a 45# per side. It's a tough leg workout, but it's very effective!

I'm in reasonably good shape but i missed 3 weeks due to a 17 day trip away and a few days of overwork and not being motivated enough to get back in. Before I left I was squatting 300 lb for 5 sets of 5. After missing 3 weeks, I was strong enough to still do it, but it would have been crazy to do it. I did my first leg day workout with just 135, and I am sore. After maybe 3 more workouts I will be back, but I must ease back in, especially abs and glutes.

weighing in (ha! pun intended) again.

it is entirely possible to be a fitness junkie, and still wind up being overly sore to the point of pain for a week, if one trains with the wrong trainer.

it is okay to be a little bit sore...and that's what good trainers aim for. to make it hurt just good enough that you remember the workout in a *good* way and come back for more.

people can be extremely fit yet try a different tweak on a particular muscle group or! change up how they do something and wind up more sore than you'd imagine.

example. I am really fit! have awesomely strong legs. (i press 115 lbs easily and in squat, and plié positions). i "free squat" (standing) easily. i completed a 10,000 squats challenge a few weeks ago and am running thru it a second time now. the end of the challenge has one perform one set of 200 squats.

now, there were days I did 4 or 5 sets of 50 or 75 squats. but they were broken in to 50 or 75 reps. the day i did 200 in one go?

OW.

because it was a unique challenge to undeniably conditioned, strong muscles.

then again, the soreness wasn't debilitating, and faded within 24-36 hrs.

ymmv, jmo.
